I was grateful to see Charlie do the shearing! I has NEVER seen the whole process. It is amazing from start to finish and I totally thank you for sharing.

Sandi, people are so stupid. They have an opinion on things that they have knowledge of. People...everyone gets haircuts...how stupid can you be. SHED IT OR CUT IT!!- You'd have a sheep die rather than get it sheared..my God how stupid can people be. Ever see a poodle who has never had a haircut? That's called Animal Abuse and you will face a fine or jail time if you have one. It just is remarkable how unaware people are. Sandi, ignore them for the fools they are. You are doing a remarkable job raising your sheep. Amazing system you have there. Job well done. 💘 🐑

I think ur fine! People in this world want nothing more to bring others down. If they don’t like something why not move on? Because they want to stir up trouble. Everybody is bigger behind a screen! Jeez people, move on if u don’t like it! Anyway, off my soap box, I love ur channel and will watch anything u put up. Keep up the great work!

Sandi peaple don't understand why you should shear sheep, I have to say I understand the people who don't know sheep that we'll like look how there sheared for others it looks like your cutting off there skin, but if your one of those who yelled at sandi the sheep were not bleeding or being harmed. Sandie the SSheep team are here to save the day (as in Sandi sheep team)

I really wish I understood what the public’s big objection with shearing sheep is. Like, for what it’s worth, I can understand how people who hold strong beliefs about animal farming could have a problem with breeding sheep for meat consumption as a concept, and yet I never see comments about that like I might expect. Instead there’s just heavy judgement about, of all things, shearing - arguably one of the most harmless and humane parts of their care! Why is this so controversial?

Keep on Keeping on. You ask advice from professionals when you need it, you've learned through experience for so many years and countless hours. I know it's hard but don't let small minds drag you down. You got this. For whoever says shearing is cruel, evil, or doesn't need to be done; I challenge them to hang out with a shearer for a day. If your opinion doesn't change then maybe I'll listen.

I know it's hard to be criticized on seemingly everything you do, but remember your true fans love you and love to watch what you are doing. Those people being negative are probably the same ones that if you didn't shear then they would complain about how awful it is for the sheep to be walking around with all that extra weight. Can't win! Keep up the awesome work you are doing! We have your back all the way.

10th+11th May it snowed in the Highlands of Scotland too. I watch your VLOGS and enjoy/find them interesting and enjoyable. I am an airline pilot, not a farmer or shepherd. Roll with the punches! Those that carp are self centred, opinionated prats. You are what you are! You and you family wear your hearts on your sleeves and show your mistakes as well as your successes. Those who criticise would do better to offer alternatives rather than tear you down. My Clan (Anderson) moto is "Stand Shure". Well lassie, Stand Shure!

Hi. Kiwi Lifestyle farmer here and really enjoy seeing how you operate and comparing systems etc. We are all grass fed over here but don't get snow like you, so housing our stock just doesn't make sense. On the shearing, my first reaction was "thats different" on his technique. But the end product ie how the sheep comes out of the wool is more important and he leaves the sheep clean with minimal cuts. So go for it I say. Could he be quicker with the Kiwi style of shearing, probably but he isn't shearing hundreds of sheep a day so why change. On the criticism around shearing, you are dealing with people who have no contact with reality and are totally ignorant about farming and animal health etc. The simple reality is, apart from a very few breeds who self-shed their wool, the rest have to be shorn for their benefit. We take advantage of that by finding uses for that wool. Ironic really that most of the people most critical of shearing are "environmentalists", probably sitting in their oil-based clothes, on their oitl-based covered furniture with their feet on their nylon carpet. All of which have a huge negative impact on the environment, when they could be using a natural product such as wool which has a far better value in terms of thermal qualities etc and has a smaller impact on the environment. I don't believe you will ever convince anyone of the keyboard warriors that their views are ignorant, but I am 100% on your side with it. Love the videos. Am working on some vlogs of my own so maybe be able to compare notes. Kia Kaha (stay strong) You are going great guns

I'm a alpaca farmer and shearer and have to deal with the same problems. People don't understand just how important shearing a wool/fleece animal is for their comfort and health. It can be tiring and frustrating dealing with negative comments and prejudice but most of all, just a lack of knowledge and understanding. It is our responsibility for educate. What you are doing by putting yourself and your farm out there is helping to educate the rest of the world, I know it's hard and disheartening sometimes but you are doing a fantastic job. 💞

It's one thing if someone is trying to be helpful and says something like, this might work better if you do it like this...It is another thing if someone says, you did that wrong, and poops on your parade. Don't let bullies ruin your experience. They love your attention. I encourage you to not even address them and not be apologetic for how you do things. Only focus on those that are positive and encourage and thank them.

Please don't give in to the haters. If they don't like your video content then they can just as easily not watch certain ones, since you do label the videos. Sheering sheep is a farm chore. Who is to say that whomever is writing that you or someone who works for you is doing something wrong, is really the expert that they say they are? Take the positive comments and throw out the rest(from your mind and heart). You are not going to please everyone no matter what! Keep doing what you're doing. There are plenty that enjoy your videos and learning ALL aspects of your farming; right, wrong, or different it's your farm. A lot of us are learning with you.

I recently started following you and I hope you are able to rise above negative comments but please know that there are so many people happily following that truly love you for the wonderful and strong woman you are. I can be so affected by haters and it is HARD to ignore much less protect our heart from the hurt those comments. One thing I started doing was to literally count the negative comments and positive comments - just to see what percentage of negative comments. It helped me to see that the negative comments percentage is very small when compared to the positive percentage. I am certain that the positive far outweighs the negative. We love you and how you share the entirety of what happens during lambing (and all the other aspects of having sheep).

Hi Sandi, i think you are great love your channel and your approach. I wonder if the ignoramus people ever got their hair cut??? Hmm I wonder if they have watched animal rescue channels where people have been charged with negligence and animal cruelty for not having their flock sheared? I have some farming background, not an expert, but it doesn’t take rocket science to see the health benefits to sheep having a decent haircut. What happened to commonsense ? Keep up the good vibes, if all else fails use the “block” button, its your channel / s and make the intention clear, no tolerance to abusive comments, seems the way most people are going with their channels to keep the trolls out. And BIG CONGRATULATIONS on your numbers and outcomes 🤠💜

There are evil people in this world and these folks have no concern for any truth or your integrity. Second subject. Does the Quad birth produce as much profit per lamb as twins? Is the profit margin higher for twins? Could you consider culling a ewe that always delivers Quads?

Does the sheep get sheared safely by Charlie? If so, it’s the right way. Sheep need shearing. Ignorant fools ought to see a flyblown sheep, that’s a horror that can happen to an unshorn, neglected sheep.

I really enjoy your channel along with thousands of other people. Sometimes I think the vegans don't realize they're killing a living thing and keeping it from reproducing. Every human living has had something living killed in order for that human to live/survive and grow whether that person is a meat eater or not. Some people will complain they have to breathe for themselves while others wish they could breathe for themselves. Quality channel keep doing what you're doing! Ride Hard Knuckles in the wind

They are so stupid. You have to shear. There is no way around it. How do other vloggers get around posting their shearing videos? Activists should shut up and go after real animal abusers. I think they obviously get off on bullying you. You are loved by so many. And the jerks that want to criticize shearing technique...I say bite me! I sheared my own sheep and drew way more blood. I am always impressed by how amazing the way your shearer does. You take care of your sheep better than so many other people! I am praying for those jerks that they will see the beauty in your farm and your animals.

I remember when I first went to my friends families huge sheep farm in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. It was her dads and his brothers combined sheep farm and they had thousands and thousands of sheep in many different areas of the two combined farms. Their sheep are to produce high quality wool for designer suits and also for market when they got to a specific age after lambing. My first time going to the farm I was 13 and it was lambing season, the second time I went was at sheering time (and our little house we stayed in on the farm was connected to the huge sheering shed/barn where all the sheep would be sheered by over 20-30 men. As a young teenager I did find it quite confronting but after my friends uncle educated me on other reasons why they sheer besides making a living, I was happy to see it get done. They would sheer just before the boys would go into the same area as the ewes. And also prior to summer (as Australia gets quite hot especially if you have a wooden coat you can't take off)! It is really upsetting to see you so upset by these comments because I know I would feel the exact same way.... and its actually the main reason why I haven't started up a youtube channel, as I take so much to heart. I do think that it is important to show sheering and continue to educate the public on why we sheer sheep. It would be cruel if I never brushed or clipped my dog, so what's the difference with sheep???? People NEVER think before they type sometimes. If you do still want to show sheering, you can always disable the comments on that video or filter them by not publishing comments with certain words. BUT, Sandi, I think you are doing an amazing job by educating people about the different parts of running a sheep farm... and you are doing an amazing job at it too. I think people who don't live in areas where they don't see sheep living in fields on a daily basis would forget that we do all of this for the comfort of the animal. Its not like we want them to be miserable their entire lives, We do care for them as they provide us with food and warm clothing and for that I respect every farmer and animal in the world. Love, Janelle (Melbourne, Australia)

Sandi I've had 3 ewes since 2012 as organic lawn mowers. My first lambing season was 2016. I lost my favorite ewe two summers ago. Heat stroke on hottest day of summer. Lost another one last summer. Respiratory issue. I was down to one ewe and my ram when I found your channel. This spring instead of getting out of sheep, I bought 8 replacement ewes because your channel gave me my confidence and curiosity back. 😊 Please tell Charlie I LOVE watching him shear. I shear my own and learned how to do a few (many) things SO MUCH better just seeing how he works. He makes it look effortless. I'm a worthless lump on the couch after 2. Cheers from Iowa! You give me hope. 🍻

Make your own website. Then you can add the videos you want. Some people just just like to criticize. There’s enough bad in the world. I wish people would find the good and positive in everything. 😃

Don’t let the naysayers get you down. You are an inspiration to a lot of people. As my late great-grandmother said, “People who try to build themselves up by tearing other folks down are some of the saddest examples of human behavior”. Sounded better with her 100 year old Irish brogue!

Sandi, know that most of us love you! I’m sorry the negative comments hurt you...you’re normal. You are tired and you recover quickly! Our good friend was a sheep farmer (70’s up to his death in 2002) and we loved visiting/helping him castrate, ear tip cut off (whether or ewe) and tail dock. He was the only shearer in our county. I know that a ‘wool bound’ sheep can be a dead sheep. I agree with you and I wouldn’t share it anymore either. Some people don’t or won’t ever understand. They’d scream bloody murder at the tail docking our friend did, or de-horning goats and cows. Your channel is a joy and you take really great care of your sheep. Rest up sweet lady.

he reason you shear is probably cos its better for the sheep. lets face it the animals we call sheep today are a mutated form compared to sheep hundreds of years ago. we improved the quality of the wool and with that comes the responsibilty of looking after that coat. like we do with some dogs. in fact I have seen videos where roaming sheep have evaded the shearers for a couple of years and there coat becomes so matted and heavy that if they fall over they cant get up again. also for hygiene shawn sheep ewes are much cleaner to lamb. and the blood and guts of lambing are overall cleaner.

Don't listen to ignorant people we love the shearing videos and your showing the real life of your farm and that's the way it should be we love you keep it up you make my day and I've gone through so much recently my house burning down w my animals in it my ex boyfriend literally was a in the closet drug addict and Overdosed and died in my camper bathroom I live in and my good friend is dying of liver failure so please keep going I love all you do I'm a farmer to and that is nothing compared to butchering and feeding a dead animal to pigs so you show nothing hardcore so please keep showing everything we love you so much

Hey Sandi i don't really comment on video's and i have never commented on a farming video before whatsoever. I found your channel a little bit back i think two or three lambing groups back. Anyway i started watching you because your very educational and i love watchin the farming process. i'm nowhere near the point in my life where i can have sheep and with the Virus going about i doubt those dreams will take off any time soon. However your the main reason i want to get into farming. The reason i comment to you today and comment on this video is because you should never and i mean ever really take advice from people you would never go to advice for. You should post what you want and do as you please. Everyone else is learning from these videos. Everyone else is stopping what they are doing and coming to see what you posted. Its not about what haters think its about what your herd of 162k subs think. If you want to post shearing do it. If you want to post something that you think will help us learn then post it and ignore the people who try and act like they know everything because at the end of the day you know your animals and we don't. You know what's best for them and we don't however those of us that are watching are learning what they need. Heck you have subs poitning out when your ewes are disowning sheeps or when they think a lamb or ewe might be limping. You have 162k people supporting you and what you do. So just be you Sandi and keep posting. Tldr; You have 162k people standing as one big herd with you so don't worry about the those outside of your herd say.

I don’t understand why people think shearing is such a big deal. Literally it is an essential part of keeping sheep. It is for the welfare of these animals. They’re all so much happier after they get all of that wool off of them. ❤️🐑
